Luke Davies retires
It is with more than a tinge of sadness that we have to announce that winger Luke Davies has decided to retire from rugby following what he describes as "repetitive and accumulating injuries".
Luke joined from Builth three seasons ago and became a firm favourite with Ebbw fans for his strong running and devastating dress sense. He memorably scored a superb try in the classic cup tie against Pontypridd in March, 2013. Speaking on his Facebook page, Luke said, "I have had a thoroughly enjoyable three years at the club and is certainly the highlight of my playing career. I would like to thank all the boys, supporters and everyone involved with Ebbw Vale RFC for making myself and my family feel so at home during my time, both on and off the field, in particular Rhys Shorney and Alan Hancock for keeping me on the field. I wish the club every success it deserves, I am proud to have played part of the movement getting the club back where it belongs, but I now need to start fighting with my body, not against it and take my place as an Ebbw Addict!"
Chariman Jon Jones said, "It's a great shame to lose a player of Luke's proven quality but we're delighted that, as a qualified chiropractor, he'll remain at the the club and assist the Medical and Conditioning teams in rehabilitating players following injury."
